I made 2 large rectangle cakes for this Mermaid Cake, then using a large sharp knife cut them into 6 pieces – a circle for the head, rectangle for her bodice, then a triangle for the top of the tail and the tail. It was surprisingly easy to cut out the shapes!
I put the pieces all together – then iced and decorated!! Cupcakes were used as bikinis! Sour straps were used for the hair.
